Banging Brands x Cosmic Zipper

Designer Brand Paris Etoile Pant S/S 2021

INFLUENCE/MOOD BOARD

These pants contain MANY replicant Id’s from various brands. Including: Off-White, Louis Vuitton, Chanel, Supreme, Unravel and Gucci. The pant features reflective 3M silver hits with Freddy Kreuger influenced scratches and an ode to David Bowie famous face triangles. Completing the look is a very complex oversized flo-orange zipper with skulls that glow underneath.

THE DETAILS

Pants were completely deconstructed at the seams to allow easier access. Underneath has Hits of reflective 3M silver and Glow in the Dark Skulls. Pants are slashed to have the underneath pop through. Includes jagged scissor cut at hem. The goal was to add as many brand names as I could find. Some tags are flown in from Korea, the unravel’s came with a pair of pants I purchased. And a couple other brand names came from a covid mask and a ladies hairband that I cut up.

If you need any help on how I made something. Just email me. The Big orange zipper was the most challenging. My sewing teacher was a great sport, super big help, but she still rolls her eyes when I mention the complex cosmic zipper. And yes, it really does work and the skulls do glow bright green. Makes the Black pant, Orange zipper and Green glow skulls come together quite pleasantly.

Run to the Siberia Hills

Paint on Paint on Paint

Clothing companies are great at pushing the boundaries of promotion in the digital age. Check out the video below by Siberia Hills. You won’t see the ubiquitous jumping into pants or flashy graphics. But what we do get is some extraordinary under painting. Await some cool surprises on the bottom layer and the top layer of the painting. Nice way to promote your their clothing line. And check out the matching shirt. For More on Siberia Hills, see more, buy more here

Now if someone could help me with the jumping into clothes thing, LMK in the comments sections. My friend said to jump up and down in front of a door. But that’s all I understood of her directions. LOL! Got a bunch of pants RTW RTS. (Ready to Wear and Ready to Sell!)

Reconstructing the Deconstructed Seersucker

Not Ready To Wear…Yet

My goal was to have these ready to wear on Father’s Day 2016. But, as I was reconstructing the deconstructing I added in a few additional design elements. And am not done yet. For Today, I’m just posting some pix. When they’re complete, I’ll give the story and the deets on the how to’s on the DIY. Happy Father’s Day!

The Man Made from Cool

Jack & Jones and Christopher Walken

The suave and super cool Christopher Walken brings a peculiar yet very fun to watch vibe to revitalize  the Jack & Jones brand. Watch him in Made from Cool,  5 different short films as he makes clothes in the most manly, coolest and fascinating ways possible. He runs the gambit of a fashion designer utilizing the following 5 skills:  Tailoring, Sewing, Knitting, Cutting up fabric (my favorite) and ends the series by Shearing a sheep with his bare hands.

Christopher would be called a Renaissance man in the main stream media, I’d just call him the Coolest. See him in one of the biggest Dance Videos of all time as he moves and grooves his way through Fat Boy Slim’s Weapon of Choice. These shoes were made for Walken’ and lots of Dancin’.
